Seated Amida Buddha, the hands placed centrally on the lap in the Amida jo-in concentration mudra, sculpted in relief from an iron-rich igneous stone. Late-Muromachi Period ca. 1550. Very minor old loss. Light lichen accumulation.

Height: 36 cm
Width: 20 cm
Depth: 9.5 cm

With its bottom surface sculpted for insertion into the soil, this piece requires some form of lateral support for upright display indoors.

A charming example of pre-Edo Japanese stone sculpture.
